Hi!
My question is would somebody change anything in the following configuration for Full HD gaming, at similar price of course:?

INTEL CORE I5 2400, BX80623I52400
Sapphire HD6870 1024MB 11179-09-20G
2xKingmax 4GB, DDR3, 1333MHz, PC10600
ASROCK P67PRO3
Chieftec A-80, 500W CTG-500-80P

Thanks!
 
First and most important, the memory that you have selected is rated at 1.5~1.8v, the way that I read that is that it can be anywhere inbetween those numbers. With the 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors like the Intel Core i5-2400 you want to make sure that the memory that you use is rated at 1.5 ± 5% so a maximum voltage of 1.575v. If you use memory at >1.5 you can damage the processor and void the warranty so select some other memory.

Also the power supply that you select I know nothing about so I would advise that you look for a good Antec, Corsair or SeaSonic power supply. Power supplies are one of the most common things to go back and a lot of the time they are a pain to trouble shoot what is wrong in the first place.

Ok, thanks.

Here is a link with this memory:
http://www.kingmax.com/product_info.asp?fid=151&mid=181&cid=184&id=1164
It says voltage 1.5V
Where did you see 1.5~1.8V?
